At least, not if they have a previous condition.
Quote:
A burger joint in the U.K. called Almost Famous is getting its share of fame after a British woman reportedly dislocated her jaw while trying to eat one its massive triple burgers.

Nicola Peate, 25, says that she ordered the "Kids in America" burger at Almost Famous in Liverpool, and after taking a bite out of the burger suddenly felt like she "had a cramp in my tongue, then I started to get an ear ache and a headache,” reported the U.K.'s Mirror.

The burger comes with three patties, pretzels and bacon.

Peate, who has a condition that makes her jaw susceptible to dislocation, laughed it off. But the next morning when she woke up in pain, she went to the hospital where an X-ray confirmed she had dislocated her jaw. A doctor was able to manipulate it back into place.

A spokesman for the restaurant said people often joke that the size of its hamburgers is big enough to dislocate a jaw but this was the first case of it actually occurring.
Also, pretzels with a burger? Weird.

Yeah, I know. But it's been a slow Non-Asylum news week.

I'd think on-demand jaw dislocation could be delightful.

The local burger/sub/pizza shop near where I live offers soft pretzel buns for their burgers and chicken sandwiches. It's non-salted and very delicious.

I've noticed a few places are going the pretzel bread route. Sonic has pretzel bread hotdog buns, and both Wendy's and Ruby Tuesdays have pretzel bun burgers. I mean, they're okay but I don't think they're remarkably more so than regular buns. I'd say they make the particular products taste more bready and takes away from the actual burger and hotdog.

Pretzel bread for the buns is fine. It's actually incredibly tasty, but it sounds like either a side or them throwing something weird on the burger.

Pretzel's are made by dipping bread dough in baking soada water then cooking them. I'm wondering if they are pushing the pretzel bread because it has a preservitive quality over normal buns so they can keep using them longer before they stop being fresh?

Possible, but more likely its just a gimmick.
